Free Floating Music

Free Floating

Simplicity and repose are the qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.
–Frank Lloyd Wright

We should listen to the silence with the same attention that we give to the sounds.
–John Cage

Free Floating Music exists to release and promote serene, peaceful ambient music, music that grows out of and flows through the silence around it, sculpting spaces for reflection, repose and rejuvenation.

All music released through Free Floating Music is available for free download via Creative Commons non-commercial licenses.

The plans for what would become The Sidereal Cycle took place without any input from me. I first found out about the concept from a post on the Altus blog. As soon as I read it I reached out to Mike (Carss, AKA Altus) with a resounding, “Yes, please!” Fans of Free Floating and ambient I’m sure will understand my enthusiasm. Simply put, Mike Carss is a master of ambient music, there can be no doubt about that. Of the ambient artists that I listen to and love, I feel that Altus music is the...

I love the music that I release on Free Floating. While that may seem a banal statement, I feel that it’s important to put it out there. As the label has grown and I have clarified and developed my approach to the music that is submitted to Free Floating, I have come to feel more strongly the importance of my loving the music. While I can apply various aesthetic criteria to works that I am evaluating for release, much of the final decision comes down to how I feel about the music and how it...

I think that part of what makes Jack Hertz stand out as an ambient artist is his passionate attachment to the natural world and his interest in expressing that passion through his music.  Whether he’s inspired by starfish, wetlands, trees, oceans, or microflora, his art is informed by his experiences and love of the world around him. And he is usually one to put his money where his mouth is, releasing music through his Sound4Good label which donates proceeds to appropriate charities.  This...

If there is a core, an artistic and emotional center to the music released by Free Floating, then Daniel Robert Lahey’s music is there. I consider his music (breathing may surprise, tonalchemy and now gravity’s kiss) to be the prototypical examples of what I think Free Floating music is.  Daniel’s music creates this aural space that is lush and deep, yet very simple and immediate at the same time. There is real depth to his knowledge of traditional musical structures, yet he is wise...

I am drawn to the intimacy implicit in this collection by Magnetic Wind. The titles (and indeed the inspiration noted by the artist) inform us that this music explores the desire for closeness and relationship. These are, in essense, ambient love songs; I Want to Hold Your Hand via Brian Eno, if you will. Of course this music is really more mature in its approach to love than the adolescent angst of the early Beatles. Perhaps its more akin to an ambient take on George Harrison's Something from...
